Well medicine can’t stop nature. My twins were welcomed into the world on January 30th one minute apart. I went back for a sono and things seemed to have progressed from my last one. Up to L&D I went and the attending decided to give me a c-section before my water broke. Baby b was transverse or in everyday terms he was across my belly rather than up and down. This may have caused him to come out breech and possibly go into distress. So as disappointing as it was to have a c-section after two natural births this moment was not about me and what I wanted but what was best for them. They are a little small and still need some time to mature in the NICU but for premies and twins they are big and doing really well. But to a mom it’s a little like torture leaving them there, and my other two are still being shuttled around periodically until I’m getting around better. But I did get to spend a few days with Woodji and see him smile, he has the best smile ever, and hear him laugh, his laugh is pretty great too. Missy is growing up so fast I feel like I must be missing something important when she is away from me. She has lost her two front teeth and she is even cuter than usual, which is pretty hard because she’s already really cute. I love my kids if you can’t tell ;).
My newest son looks just like his brother and his dad and my newest daughter looks like her big sis and me I guess ;). Is it weird that I feel weird about posting their pics and using their names? I mean I really call them Missy and Woodji more than their names, and so far we have Mimi as Wonder twin A’s nickname and we’re working on Wonder twin B’s nickname. Oh and of course they are already called the wonder twins, both my husband and uncle are comic book fans.

New techniques: Applied I-cord and buttonloops
These buttons are so old my grandma can’t remember where she got them from. They were with her sewing machine when I umm borrowed it from her :). I used the attached I-cord edging and I am officially in love with it. I also used the buttonloop tutorial from Amelia Raitte’s website. I had to do that from memory because the last working computer in the house has died. I’m posting from my sister’s laptop. I would make a statement like what else could go wrong but that would be like asking for it wouldn’t it? This is my fastest knit ever, until I finished these two hats in two days time, maybe less.
I have also gotten a lot of work done on something for me.
I am about to run out of yarn so I am doubling up some green merino aran and I really like how it looks so far. It would seem that anxiety, no school, and immobility make for a lot of knitting here at knitology. I learned two new techniques and I want to start applying I-cord to everything and never work a button band again. Once I’m all healed and everyone is at home I may not knit another stitch for months but I am looking forward to it.
